Default More Than Half Way through my Journey

This year, I celebrated my birthday much like any other year: a low key celebration the Friday before, then I am off for a week for or two for fishing. I got the usual presents: 3 shirts. I went fishing in Kansas as usual. The only trip out of the ordinary this year was my trip to the Florida keys with my father in law and a couple of friends. I am 45 now. None of my parents made it past 90, so I am guessing that I am more than half way through my journey. Hopefully, there is still a good third left...

We did 2 trips with Best Bet Sport Fishing. The first trip was a inshore trip to the reefs. We caught some yellow tail snappers, blue runners, a jack fish, and a blue parrot fish. I almost got a picture of the parrot fish before it slipped out of my friends hands. We also hooked into a tarpon and 3 sharks (had two sharks on at one time).

Trip # 2 was a deep sea trip. We mostly caught small black fin tunas, but we also got 3 mahi-mahis.
